World Listening Day 2013 – My Contribution

by soundlandscapes

YESTERDAY, THURSDAY 18th JULY, was World Listening Day 2013. Organised by the World Listening Project in partnership with the Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology, World Listening Day is a celebration of listening as it relates to the world around us. People from across the world participate in a variety of ways and I was keen to make my contribution.


World Listening Day 2013 – My Contribution:

What makes this piece different from others that I’ve produced for this blog and elsewhere is that it wasn’t recorded using fancy recording equipment, instead, it was all recorded using only my mobile phone. I think it shows that mobile phones really do have the capacity to turn us all into citizen journalists.

    Nicely done, it proves that having expensive recording equipment is only part of the field-recording process. What is a field recording if it isn’t driven by the recordist’s enthusiasm and attention to the world that moves around us in waves of sound?

      Thanks JD. Yes it shows that recordings are limited only by one’s imagination not by the equipment you use.
